Ok friends, I've made a little progress. (Slow progress with parents in town and starting up my photography company taking up time). I downloaded my PQ's and they are all in the GSAK program. Now how to get it to compile this data into neat little charts and graphs like I saw on pbumps profile is another story. Im really trying. I downloaded the BASIC 101 tutorial. Just wondering where to go from here. I will try to take pbumps advice here in a minte and see where it takes me. IN teh mean time if anybody could answer back with a link to how to do the above data complilation and place it into the html form and paste it into my geocaching.com profile it'd help me tremendously! THANKS in advance

Play with importing/moving waypoints. You need to wind up with all of your finds in one "database" (use the database menu item - it's all in there), and all of your hides in another database. If you haven't downloaded and installed the findstatgen macr0, you'll need to do that (macro menu item). Then dig into the settings - just play. You can't hurt anything. Much.

How do I select all my caches and create a database. Let me start with that. Ugh.

I don't know if this will help, but this is what I do:

In GSAK, click on Database and then New. In the next window, type the name of the database. My Finds is what I use to maintain my found caches. Then click on the Create button.

Next go to your pocket queries on geocaching.com. Click on the Pocket Queries Ready to Download tab and click to open your My Finds PQ. It is probably a zipped file so you may have to use WinRAR or similar program to unzip it and get to the GPX file.

Once your database is loaded, click on Macro and then Run/Manage. If you don't have any macros you will need to click on the link to the Online Macro Index. Search for FIndStatGen3.gsk. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the file to download it. Then you will be ready to run it.

Once the results pop up, they will also be copied to your clipboard so they are ready to be pasted to your profile.

To know GSAK is to love it!

Yup. Plugins. The ones you want all start with FSGPlugin - there are a gazillion. Well, quite a few anyhow. Some work straight out, some need som configuring, all need added to NOTES sections in your FSG setup as commands. Most authors include instructions/examples in the code.

Finds by placed date is a default section - may just need to enable it in the SECTION ORDER under OPTIONS.

I think I owe somebody a beer or refreshing beverage of your choice at next geo meeting.
